Throwback - Style Fashion Week Malan Brenton F/W2017 Collection

Hello, all my Divas and Gurus! I know it has been a while since I wrote on here. I am working on a permanent schedule for this blog. In the meantime, I will be sharing some exclusive Throwback photos of my time at events, fashion week, and more. This week is a look at Malan Breton F/W2017 Style Fashion Week show. I loved the styling and overall aesthetic of the collection.

Blogging With .....

Hello, all my divas and gurus. For many years, I keep Heavy on fashion blog as a fashion and beauty filled zone. I rarely talked about my personal life, goals, and struggles. Recently, my diagnosed depression, anxiety and PTSD is affecting my life and my blogs. It has been extremely hard to be myself. Writing has been out of the question for the past few years. Now, I had depression, anxiety, and PTSD since I was 17. This has caused me to have many ups and downs. Since November 2016, I have found myself more down than up and less willing to make an effort to write. At first, I thought it was that I was no longer being fulfilled from writing on Heavy on fashion, Just Malanb and Milan Malan word on the Street. The truth is I was not in a good mental space. Recently, I had to take serious time to reroute my goals and my health to a better place. I know that having depression, PTSD and anxiety is a factor. I realized that I can only control what I can control. 

So here is the new declaration for Heavy on Fashion 

Heavy on fashion will not just focus on just Fashion, Books, and Beauty but also Self-care, mental health, and weight loss. I will post once a week, most likely every Sunday. This is not a consistent schedule but I make an effort. No promises. 

All of my upcoming posts, my favs of the moment and more will be featured on my Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/heavyonfashion/ 

All my Throwback Thursday youtube video, raw video footage,  and photos throughout the years on Heavy on fashion Tumblr blog at http://heavyonfashion.tumblr.com/ 

I am working on a vlog which will probably be a weekly update on what coming on the site on my Heavy on Fashion Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/HeavyonFashion/ (most likely on Wednesday) 
 

How I am Surviving 2017

Hello, all my fashion divas and gurus! Usually, I post the annual Heavy on Fashion New Year New You list. This year is different. The election of a "man" that lost the popular vote and pandered to exclusion of people of the United States, has changed me. It has changed the site.  The People of the United States are dealing with a government that does not reflect their ideas of what liberty and justice for All really mean.

Getting back into it with some changes

We all knew that 2017 would be a struggle since the results of the election. No one knew how low this so called puppet president and his puppeteer Bannon would go to cause chaos, hate and discord in the world. I knew it would be horrible but I didn't know how much of a mental toll this would take on me. So, I decided to get back to blogging. Don't get it twisted, I am going to talk about any and every way we all can fight against this dangerous administration. Heavy on fashion will not be just about reviews, events and gift guides but also how we all can make this a better place for all people. And I do mean all people. 

Welcome to the new Heavy on Fashion!  

A little note to the #WomensMarch - Revolution

Yesterday, I was so proud of the turn out of the #WomensMarch that it inspired me to bring over my poetry that focuses on Social Justice and the current climate of the 2017 political world over to Heavy on Fashion. I love bringing you all great tech, beauty products review, books reviews, NYFW and gift guides. In 2017, I feel it is also time to bring in a bit of myself and my views on the world that we all live in. Starting today, I will bring in snippets of my Just MalanB Tumblr page- http://justmalanb.tumblr.com/

Heavy on Fashion is making moves!

Now as you all may or may not know, Heavy on Fashion will be going to a branding change. Nothing really huge! I will still have NYFW, book reviews, gift guides, self-care guides, and of course going to really cool events (fashion and beauty based). I will also cover a lot more areas that I am finding myself love like tech in fashion and beauty, conference events, health (Physical and mental), and yummy food reviews/features.

I am hoping to start a vlog series as well. This has been an idea that I have had for many years. It will be a video series of all the events I am attending from leaving the house to my reaction to the event, open box reviews, shopping, gift and self-care guides previews, and my personal book picks. I am hoping to have the Heavy on Fashion Vlog up by January 2017.
